Be of good cheer. Do not think of today’s failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles. Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost. ––Helen Keller (Address to the American Association to Promote the Teaching of Speech to the Deaf at Mt. Airy, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 8 July 1896). Note: Helen Keller entered Radcliffe College in the fall of 1900 and received her bachelor of arts degree cum laude in 1904.

Recombinant DNA molecules are DNA fragments that are covalently linked in the lab. This technology has enabled researchers to study the relationship between genes and phenotype, and understand gene structure and function. Applications of these technologies include gene therapy and the production of transgenic plants and animals. Recombinant DNA Technology

Cloning experiments may involve two kinds of DNA molecules: chromosomal DNA and vector DNA. A vector is a small piece of DNA into which a gene of interest is introduced. The vector is then placed within a living cell, where it replicates and produces multiple identical copies of the inserted gene.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
